Hog cholera, In Merck Veterinary Manual, National Publishing Inc. Eight ed, , Philadelphia, p Swine Fever, In Veterinary Medicine, Saunders, Eight ed, , London p. Office International des Epizooties, Swine fever is one of the most important virus diseases of pigs. It is notifiable in most countries of the world.. The pig is the only natural host. The virus is spread from infected or carrier pigs via discharges from the nose, mouth, urine and faeces or infected semen and it is highly contagious. Classical swine fever (CSF), otherwise known as hog cholera (HC) or just swine fever, is a specific viral disease of pigs. It affects no other species. It is a notifiable disease in most countries of the world.   Abstract For the global pig industry, classical (CSF) and African swine fever (ASF) outbreaks are a constantly feared threat. Except for Sardinia, ASF was eradicated in Europe in the late s, which led to a research focus on CSF because this disease continued to be present.

Classical swine fever is caused by a small, enveloped RNA virus in the genus Pestivirus of the family Flaviviridae. Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) is antigenically related to the other pestiviruses, mainly to bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) of cattle and to border disease virus (BDV) of sheep. These viruses are highly prevalent in bovine and ovine populations and can infect pigs. to distinguish from acute classical hog cholera. Both diseases produce high fevers that last for about four or five days. Once the fever has subsided, however, African swine fever virus characteristically causes death within two days (as opposed to seven days for hog cholera). Although immunization has been effective in. African swine fever (ASF) is a highly contagious virus disease of pigs, caused by a unclassified virus (sharing similarity with Iridovirus and Poxvirus). The disease is characterised by fever, hyperaemia of the skin, haemorrhages of the internal organs and, frequently, very high mortality.   The classical swine fever virus (CSFV) is a pestivirus—a genus in the family Flaviviridae—and it is closely related to other pathogens of veterinary importance, for example, bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) and border disease virus of sheep (BDV) (Simmonds et al., ).

  Classical Swine Fever (CSF) is a highly contagious viral disease that affects swine. Once called hog cholera, CSF has been eradicated from many developed nations. More Information.
